Sunday Replays: July Photo of the Month


Time to replay July photos featured in my 2012 Photo of the Week series. Thanks to all WordPress bloggers and other readers who sent me a “like” or comment to help select my July Photo of the Month.

Although My little pony received more likes, The One That Got Away pulled in more comments and one additional star rating, so I have declared a tie for first place. Orlando and Dawn is next on the most popular list, followed by Westward ho! and then Bill L Ampen tree carving.

Click on the Photo of the Week link in my Categories list to read about these and other photos featured in my Sunday series since January.

I will continue to post a POW each Sunday and the winning POM thoughout 2012, culminating with everyone’s pick for Photo of the Year. I encourage everyone to comment on or rate each photo of the week to ultimately decide my “Best of the Best.”

Road trip to Orlando


My Best Friend does all the driving on family vacations which allows me a chance to shoot photos from the front passenger window. The sport mode on my new Nikon D5100 worked fairly well cruising 40 to 70 mph through Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida.

My personal favorite was this pastoral setting before we reached Orlando; keep in mind I only have the kit lens so I couldn’t bring the horses up any closer.

The car photo was taken in southern Indiana before crossing the Ohio River bridge into Kentucky. I got lucky with the “The Batman Building” (AT&T) on the bypass around Nashville, Tenn. This was the only shot that didn’t have a flying pole or treetop or other object smack dab in the middle of the building.

The Welcome to Florida sign and the trees draped in Spanish-moss whizzed by me pretty quick so they are a bit blurred.

Be sure to stop by on Sunday for my Photo of the Week. I photographed something more colorful and unique on a pit stop near Chattanooga.
